Yorkshire-based family dealer group JCT600 has beaten its £10,000 target for its chosen charity of 2013, the British Heart Foundation, after raising £27,870.
Over the last 12 months, JCT600’s 1,800-strong team across the Bradford head office and its 47 dealerships have taken part in a range of fund-raising activities, many of which were exercise and health-related, to support the company’s first annual nominated charity.
John Tordoff, chief executive of JCT600, said: “From numerous hikes, cycle rides and football matches to a company-wide Yorkshire Three Peaks walk and even a sky dive, our team has pulled out all the stops to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation as well as getting healthier along the way.
“While JCT600 has long supported charity and community initiatives, it’s been great to see everyone pulling together last year for a common cause. By consolidating our efforts, we have been able to raise a significant amount for a charity which our team feels makes a significant difference to people’s lives.”
Colleagues have once again been invited to put forward suggestions for charities which they would like to be the focus of the company’s fund-raising activities for the coming year.
